This is a great recipe!!! Although I didnt have any marmalade, so I used jam instead, it still made it fantastic. They are beautifully comforting when warm, go fantastically with roasted or poached apples and pears or with just a bit of ice cream. Very versatile as just a snack or a full desert, these old English cakes are sure to make any dried-fruit lover happy.
These little cakes are indeed wonderful and not very common in North America. Like this recipe because of the marmalade addition. If you like dried fruits and spice these are for you. Thanks for submitting Joyfulcook.
These were very good. The filling was very nice and I ate what was left out of the pan.
I may have not let the filling cool long enough as the juice ran out of the cakes when they were cooking and stuck to the cookie sheet. Next time I'll let it cool longer and maybe cut back on the syrup.
